Never burn a bridge you may need to cross again

bridgeReaching an intelligent decision in life is not always easy. The sudden encounter with a dilemmatic situation often forces us towards a tough decision of choosing between burning a bridge and trying to mend it. Meaning, you may avoid stepping onto a bridge and go for another one, which you feel may help you to reach your destination in the long run. Along the lane of the decision-making process, we often find our priorities misplaced. That when we must be distinct which bridge we must cross and which to burn. But, always keep building one and never lose your faith in life.

The distinction and the familiarity of the bridges we encounter in life often co-hearse our thoughts in the process. Nonetheless, it is of great importance that we learn not to burn an already built bridge having used it to cross over into life and forgetting that a coin has two sides; the head and tail. On the contrary, the lesson of life is, never to burn a bridge after crossing the same. Who knows you may need the same, on your way to return.

Never Burning Bridges – A Misconception

Who theorized the illegality of burning bridges? I thus present an opposition regarding not burn a bridge in life. Even so, I do not agree with the concept of never burning bridges. Yet, I do believe you need to know is which of the bridges are worth burning and while are meant to be kept while moving through the path of life. Moreover, it is of no use to hide yourself in any tunnel as then you may lose your way out ultimately. Thus best option is while you figure out that someone or something is not favoring you or may turn out to be poisonous, just remove that path which may move you towards the person or that situation.

Subsequently if ever you feel a bridge may result to hide you in a tunnel, from which you may never come out, better you, and burn the one then and there. Once you look at your life from the windshield instead of the rear-view mirror, you will get to know that which of the bridges you are supposed to walk over and cross and which are worthy enough to be burnt and destroyed. Through this travel of life, everyone needs to know and understand the bridges to keep and those to dispose of. The indication drives to create a wall between you and the perilous characters in your life and hence burning down or destroying the unnecessary bridges. In short, the bridges, which lead to the tunnel, need to do away with lest it becomes your funeral during its destruction.

The view of life should be through a windshield and not a rear view mirror because the true concept of the living is looking forward from the present and not backward. So if ever you feel a bridge may result to hide you in a tunnel, from which you may never come out, better you, and burn the one then and there. Once you look at your life from the windshield instead of the rear-view mirror, you will get to know that which of the bridges you are supposed to walk over and cross and which are worthy enough to be burnt and destroyed.

Choices Have Consequences: You get to Make Your Own Choices, but you do not get to chose your consequences.

choices More often than not, it is said that choices have consequences. The big question is; does this assertion stand or hold any meaningful truth? Well, while we are free to make choices for our actions, we are not free to control the consequences of our actions. I honestly believe God created us as human beings not just to exist but also live happily by using all the necessities made available at our disposal for fulfillment and enjoyment

As humans, we have the discretion to choose the way we want to live our life. We were created with a mind free to choose. God created man and woman with the freedom to choose and also gave them the good ability to determine how such daily choices will shape their destiny. This reaffirms that choices have consequences; you get to make your own choices, but you do not get to chose your consequences.

Although so often in life people do not want to be responsible for the choices they make but on the contrary, we must remember we have to create our own experience. … If you do not want to admit that your decisions have real-life consequences; you will get crushed by a giant mischievous called paying the price of lacking to take on responsibility. One of my favorite quotes is “The price of greatness is responsibility” – Winston Churchill.

Every Accomplishment Starts with the decision to try & the Refusal to Quit

So often in life, we find it difficult to tread the right path and the correct balance to assume to accomplish the impossible by overcoming failures, mistakes, and disappointments that come with it. Every time we put forth the effort, we give ourselves a chance; an opportunity to be successful. Once we try, we take a risk and open a door for opportunities to come in. There is no sure formula for success, you just have to believe that you can, once you try, there is a possibility to fail. However, that should not stop you because determination fuel us to take action and the key to success comes from being committed to your goal, the decision to try and the refusal to quit.

Although, it’s hard to find the correct balance, especially during hard times and when things seem impossible to overcome, there is always a way out. The question that we should always ask ourselves is – how do we turn a feeling of failure and defeat into victory? The answer lies in one’s resolve to succeed and by always living up to the decision to try and the refusal to quit.

Thus, believing in yourself and your goals works into delivering positive results, achievements, and accomplishments. I honestly think that anyone can overcome failure because deep down within each one of us there is a burning desire that reigns unbeatable. So, we must not quit but keep trying. However, the dilemma is; success is determined by money, race and gender or does it rely on our goals and dreams as vested upon by the fundamental beliefs, laws and secrets about success?

Goal setting is a process in which an individual thinks about their ideal future. But when a person knows precisely what they want to achieve in their life, it is easy to set goals and quickly spot the distractions that would lure them away from their course.

We can become anything and accomplish anything if we always prepare for success and never miss an opportunity due to unpreparedness. We must always set goals and make strategies for achieving them. If we want to achieve success, we must always have self-discipline. Also, we must understand the definition of perseverance: refusal to quit and to keep on trying.

Tragedies do happen. We can discover the reason, blame others, imagine how different our lives would be had they not occurred. But none of that is important: they did occur, and so be it. From there onward we must put aside the fear that they awoke in us and begin to rebuild.” – Paulo Coelho
You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” ― Maya Angelou

Who am I to judge another, when I walk imperfectly?

Who am I to judge anotherIf we want to live free from distraction and be able to enjoy a more peaceful life, then we need to refrain from judging others. Furthermore, each and every one of us should stop gossip and criticism because whenever someone – anyone – criticize they are making a judgment that involves others that will make them feel ashamed, or guilty because of being judged. We should not attempt to judge other’s faults while trying to conceal our own faults. President Monson said, “Refrain from judging others. … Gossip or criticism, are certainly akin to judgment.”

Everyone wants to feel loved, accepted, and to be treated with respect. No one deserves to feel bad about themselves or feel inferior to others. People want to be valued and have a feeling of usefulness. When we make a judgment against other, we give them a sense of dissatisfaction that is not supportive. The admonition “Judge not” are often used to speak up against wrong doing and People often use Jesus’ words “Judge not”, but they do not always fully consider what He is saying about judging. Jesus’ teachings still have the same balanced today that was meant thousands of years ago.

I have studied the passages from the King James Version (KJV) to interpret and to get a full understanding of the bible on the topic ‘Who Am I to Judge’ to get a more powerful idea of Jesus’ words “Passing Judgment.” The Bible will give us a proper understanding of the teachings, sharing Jesus’ commands regarding judgment using convincing Bible verses related to the phrase ‘Who Am I to Judge.’ We will be discussing the following: Should we judge others, why are we to judge, what guidance Jesus gave us in judging others, and why do we judge others.

Should we judge others? The Bible has commanded us, “Do not judge” Read:(Matthew 7:1). Judge not, that ye be not judged. However, did it really mean we should never judge others? Let’s take a look at several Scriptures that will shed light on whether we should judge others. The Bible will give us a proper understanding of the teachings using some convincing Bible verses related to the phrase ‘Who Am I to Judge.’ Some scriptures command us not to judge while others teach us how we should judge.

Read: Romans 14:4 “Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? To his own master, he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be Holden up: for God can make him stand”. It is clear through this scripture that Paul taught Christians in Rome not to judge one another. Now let us compare this with 1 Corinthians 5:12-13 “For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? Do not ye judge them that are within? However, them that are without God judgeth. Therefore, put away from among yourselves that wicked person”. In these scriptures, Paul taught that it was all right to judge people who are unbelievers and to gently restore those who go astray.

Now to answer the question: Did the Bible really mean we should never judge others? – I would like to begin by saying issues become involved whenever someone judge another. Also, it is most likely that Christians must never judge others because if we wrongfully judge another, the way the Pharisees did, Jesus would be displeased. We must remember that if we hypocritically judge others as though we are beyond judgment like the Pharisees did on the Judgment day; we would be judged with the same severity.
